Bachmann Model Railway Locomotive Reviews -
4-6-0 Manor Class
4-6-0 Manor Class 7811 'Dunley Manor'
is from the Bachmann Cumbrian Coast Express set.
The loco hasn't got great traction, with 6 coaches it pounds at
the track making a bit of noise. It isn't able to haul a 14
coach train (which all the other tender locos can manage).
Another problem is the tender, it, like my Bachmann Scot, keeps
uncoupling itself from the engine and derails.
The speed isn't too fast and is sensible and near prototypical.
The loco does have a tendancy to stall.
Detail is good, but the 'coal' and the gear thingy rod, do look
a bit plastic-y.
The Cumbrian Coast Express set comes with the loco and two
coaches, these are very well detailed and look very good, an
oval of track and siding are included, as well as the standard
Bachmann DC controller.
So this loco works best with local 4-6 coach trains, and prefers
General Performance: 5/10
